Health Care Opportunities and Threats: Addressing Health disparities in Minority communities
Health care is a cultural and social construct. It is critical that professionals continue to discuss and better understand the consequences of increasing health disparities among minorities. There still remains a severe health care staffing shortage and minorities continue to be under represented in key healthcare specialty areas. Further, communities across the country continue to report disparities in accessing quality care and treatment that is culturally sensitive and competent. Join us as we explore cultural and social healthcare challenges, examine the impact of healthcare reform, identify career and corporate opportunities, and share organizations that have been successful in making a difference in improving healthcare outcomes.
